The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (“SNAP”) is a food assistance program offered in Colorado (formerly known as Food Stamps). SNAP provides food assistance benefits as part of a federal nutrition program to help low-income households purchase food. Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) cards are issued to receive the SNAP benefits for a household. These EBT cards can be used at most grocery stores and at participating farmer’s markets to buy food with SNAP benefits, ensuring that families have access to a healthy diet.
You can apply for benefits by completing your application online or by printing the application and returning it by mail, fax, or in person to the La Plata County Department of Human Services.
